7 human foods that cats can safely eat

Several cat food brands in the market provide quality products, but aren’t you curious if you could make some comforting meals for your cat at home? Several human foods are safe for your feline friend. Here is a list of 7 food ingredients you can easily include in your pet’s food plan. However, ensure you do not overfeed your cat and that there is no allergic reaction to any foods.

Salmon
Great for humans and kitty friends! Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein. It is no secret that cats love fish, but salmon especially is a healthy choice of food or treat for your cat. While some people feed cats raw fish, it is advised that you cook the fish through and then give it as a meal. Cooking ensures that there are no bacteria that may affect your cat and make them sick. You can steam the fish and shred it into tiny pieces and add them to their meal bowl, or you can even cut them into treat-sized bites and train your feline friend using positive food reinforcement.

Spinach
Green leafy vegetables for a cat? Well yes! Spinach has minerals like calcium, iron, and vitamins A, C, and K. While this is safe food, some cats may not enjoy the greens. So, the trick is to trick them! You can make a puree out of boiled spinach and add it to their favorite foods like fish, meat, or other cat treats they love. However, if your cat has a history of calcium oxalate bladder stones, it is best to avoid this as it could trigger some complications. Speak to your vet about the same.

Eggs
Another great source of protein for humans and kitties, eggs are a hit amongst feline friends. They are also a good source of vitamin B, contributing to cell health, eye health, digestion, brain function, and even appetite. Like you cook fish, cook the eggs properly before feeding your cat, as it may cause some reactions. The yolk has the most vitamin B, so make sure to give the yolk as well.

Cantaloupe
A surprising choice, but yes your feline friend will enjoy this fruit! It is high in antioxidants and also has beta-carotene. These both are essential for skin health and eye health. This can be added if you want to add some fruits to your cat’s meal. Blueberries are also okay to introduce to your cat if they seem to enjoy them. They are a safe and healthy option too.

Chicken
It is difficult to go wrong with this food choice, as your cat will love it! It is an excellent source of protein and can easily be added to your feline friend’s meal plan. You can boil chicken and even use broth to feed your cat.

Pumpkin
Pumpkin is a great food ingredient to add as it helps with digestion. This humble vegetable can be added to your cat’s favorite meal, like wet food or boiled chicken, to ensure they eat it. This is especially good if your cat is not feeling well and has digestive issues.

Cheese
Not a complete meal choice, but certainly a safe option for treats for your cat! Want to shower your kitty with some extra love? You can use these as bite-sized treats. Ensure you do not feed more than a couple of bites, as there may be side effects.

While homemade food is great for your cat, adding all the essential vitamins and nutrients in one meal is impossible. Some popular cat food brands have a variety of nutrients added to their food. Purina, 9 Lives, Sheba, Iams, and Hill’s are some of these. They are known for their quality ingredients and the variety of choices they have in cat food.
